|This summer, Della and I have kind of a lot of juggling gigs booked. At last count, between performing, teaching, and, more often, a hybrid of the two, I think I am up to 14 or 15 events*. Some are private parties or weddings, some are big public festivals (Anacortes Arts Festival, Subdued Stringband Jamboree), some are school gigs, and some are fundraisers. It's kind of a busy schedule for not so much being a performer. :-)
Recently, one of the events I juggled at was Bellingham's Bacon Fest, which is just as it sounds: a festival about bacon. The event benefited the Max Higbee Center, so not only was it good food, but it was for a good cause. Chipps and I did our best to radically proliferate delight (stated mission of Bellingham Circus Guild) by roaming around and juggling, stilting, rope tricks, and more. I think at least a little delight was proliferated.
The Bellingham Herald was there taking pictures and snapped a couple of fun ones of yours truly.
I'm kind of digging on this being a juggler thing. Hanging out at festivals, making folks smile, putting a little money in my pocket (or bacon in my belly as was the case here)—not a bad way to spend a glorious summer in the Northwest.

What's up with the long pants, dude? Shorts in the winter, but black slacks in the summer? Also is that cowboy-guy a zombie? Sorta looks like it...
